I really enjoy and appreciate these thoughtful weekly reflections from Rev. Peter Sawtell of Eco-Justice Ministries out of Colorado. Today he writes of "Hope and Community" and I want to share this reflection with you, as well as recommend his good work if you haven't come across it before. A blessed weekend to you all!
As part of the season of Lent, Environmental Ministries is offering "Tread Lightly for Lent," a simple, daily calendar that encourages Presbyterians to reflect theologically about ecojustice and to take action on issues such as water, land, air, people, and other species. Each of the 40 days of Lent has a topic to think about, or do some movement towards, eco-justice. Resource can be used individually as well as in a congregational setting.
